Developing Whole Family Approaches in TANF Programs

This practice brief highlights the efforts of three Office of Family Assistance, Systems to Family Stability National Policy Academy (Academy) teams in building whole family approaches that support parents and children together. The Academy was an 18-month initiative that supported TANF programs in designing and creating collaborative systems across agencies to improve family economic security. This brief, one of two, shares a series of practical tips from the teams themselves about how they created community coalitions to implement new approaches, piloted new designs, and expanded service delivery to the whole family.
